Well if you guys are from around Melbourne and frequent the Campbellfield Skidz you might have seen me and my VS or VX Clubsport kicking around ( or doing drift ringys )

Currently been serving a six month walking expo on my licence due to a slight altercation with the long arms of the law...

But pretty much counting down the last 30 days as we speak and i've put the time to good use boy do i have somthing for the boys in blue this year..

My HSV VX ClubSport, First Whipple 2.9 Blown LS1 in Australia.

Everything is pretty much done, just a few loose ends to finish up ... we currently have the box out putting in the new flywheel and clutch...

If everything gos to plan it should be on the truck to the HP-F sometime next week for the dynotune!

once its all tuned up and running i'll get into making everything look good under the bonnet, then in the final week before i get my ticket back its going in for a full body respray !

Thanks for looking at my baby and i'll be posting more pics up over the next few weeks as the final bits come together !

UPDATES:

I finally managed to get the bonnet to shut without scooping or cutting it ....

Still a few things to neaten up but looking pretty complete, its heading off for its tune at HP-F Monday week..

VIDEOS:

I was going to leave it and not start it till it was at the tuners but I couldn't help myself ... so heres a quick video of it running .... very richly i might add ...
I think i might have a vacuum leak somewhere ... hrrrmmm...
